Red wolf educational materials update
American Wolf Foundation is partnering with the Red Wolf Education & Health Care Facility (“REC”) to provide updated educational materials on the critically-endangered red wolf to visitors. The REC is located at 1221 Hwy 94S, Columbia, NC 27925, near the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge. The REC is owned by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and operated in collaboration with the National Wildlife Refuge Association and North Carolina Wildlife Federation.
American Wolf Foundation plans to expand this program to provide up-to-date educational materials to facilities housing red wolves as part of the Red Wolf Species Survival Plan nationwide.
We are identifying prospective partners to establish a Coexistence Council for the American red wolf, similar to a successful Coexistence Council established for the Mexican grey wolf in the Southwest. Contact Us to Join Us or become a Partner.
Identifying Research Topics
We are interested in funding unique predator studies. One topic of interest is the benefit of wolves in combatting invasive feral hogs, which are detrimental to farming operations and the native ecosystem as a whole. A study of Italian wolves showed they prefer wild boar over deer but there has been little opportunity for a similar study in the United States. If you have an interesting research topic and would like to Partner with us, please Contact Us.
We are collecting historical records and accounts of the American red wolf. Have a family member who remembers red wolves in the wild? Please Contact Us.
